There are lots of us who are working hard to end the suffering of cats, namely City The Kitty, The Paw Project, and Dr. Christianne Schelling. Won't you please sign these petitions, to educate authorities that we will no longer accept status quo anymore? It would be lovely if veterinarian groups simply self-administered the decree to cease this surgery, but they aren't listening to us. Is it the MONEY they make from the surgeries? Is it the fact that they would have to acknowledge that they have been WRONG? They promise to DO NO HARM, but performing onychectomy is cruel and can create behavioral issues, such as biting, and litter-box avoidance. No human would accept this procedure on their cat if they knew the true nature of it, either.
Please, add your voice to ours, and tell our governments and veterinarians to STOP!

P.S.S. Hope all of you escaped unscathed from the terrible winds that blew around the Mid-West yesterday! We did not; Eastside Cats House has been without power for 24 hours, and the neighbor's tree is leaning against our barn/garage, with live electric wires sandwiched in between. I'll update more tomorrow. Please sign the petitions! Thank YOU!
